Historical Tour - Petrópolis including Cervejaria Bohemia with Lunch

1 review
This tour is for you who enjoy mountain regions with an always cool climate and surrounded by green hills with unique silhouettes. The city of Petrópolis is located at the top of Serra da Estrela in the state of Rio de Janeiro, at 845 meters altitude, mixing and combining the past and present with the charm of the imperial period buildings and the exuberant nature of Serra dos Órgãos. Turistando RJ takes you to know several landmarks of the Imperial City starting from its own route, going up the Serra de Petrópolis with a privileged view from the top. Upon arrival in the city we will visit the German House, Quitandinha Palace, Imperial Palace, St. Peter's Cathedral, Crystal Palace, Katz Chocolate House, Santos Dumont House, Bohemia Brewery and Sovereign Restaurant.

One can see why the Portuguese Royal Family chose Petropolis as the location for their summer palace. This is a beautiful city in a great setting. We visited the Imperial Palace, the cathedral and the former casino, among other places.

Petropolis is located high in the mountains about an hour or two from Rio. In 1845, Dom Pedro I declared Petropolis his summer home and started construction of the beautiful Imperial Palace (now a museum). He donated land to other nobles so that they could build homes nearby. These mansions make up the centro historico. Best seen on foot -- very safe and comfortable.

It is also close of some nice touristic points and shops. Try to find a hotel here and you will be able to spend a day here walking through museums and other places.

I went there to visit the former summer palace of Emperor Pedro II, it is a museum now with a log of royal collections. We also went to the Cathedral and Crystal Palace. Good place away from Rio.

Amazing homes and buildings in a very European designed in the mountain tropical rainforest. I was thinking that I was in Portugal or maybe Spain or Italy.
